Bold hair color moves from alternative to mainstream
If you had pink or blue hair in 1982, you might also have worn it in a mohawk.
Now, if your high school has blue as one if its colors, go ahead, rah-rah school booster, and plaster your locks with streaks of cobalt. It won’t signal rebellion, but it might make you fit in more seamlessly with the cheerleading crowd.
The hair-gone-technicolor style from the ’80s is back, 30 years later — tamer, less DIY and more salon, and secure in the mainstream.

Colorado’s futuristic “Sleeper” house made Forbes list of America’s Ugliest Mansions

The house designed by architect Charles Deaton and made famous by Woody Allen’s 1973 film “Sleeper” has been listed as one of America’s ugliest in an article on Forbes.com which notes that “architectural beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but some mansions are just plain ugly.”

Officially named “Sculptured House,” the mansion boasts 7,700 square feet of living space, five bedrooms and baths, a top level master suite, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and an office with a wet bar and deck.

Vandalism? No — attempted art restoration
The suspected vandalism of a century-old fresco of Jesus turned out to be probably the worst art restoration effort in Spain. An elderly woman, upset that moisture had damaged her favorite fresco, tried to restore it. Should the woman face charges?

Boulder, Colorado, couple fulfill lifelong dream, living large in a 133-square-ft. home

Some homeowners prefer the sprawl of suburban McMansions. Others opt for cozy old bungalows near city centers.

Not too many opt for a 133-square-foot home — you read that correctly — that on first glance looks not much larger than a Great Dane’s doghouse.

But Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller did just that. The Boulder couple built a 7-by-19-foot wooden house whose foundation is a two-axle trailer bed. Last week, they towed it to a 5-acre patch of isolated hillside 20 minutes outside this town, which sits on South Park’s eastern edge.

Could you live in (or share) a space this small?

The Sunday Denver Post: January 15, 2012

The Denver Broncos incredible season came to an end Saturday and this is how the Denver Post played it on Sunday’s 1A.

Everything with the centerpiece package is working so well together. I absolutely love the ‘Over & Ouch’ headline. Not only…

Thank you for the kind words.
